Akinteye urged her to put more efforts in effectively developing the students’ constituency, saying youths and students in the constituency are committed to voting for her.

The other students who took turns to speak, unanimously, declared support for Tolulope Akande-Sadipe based on her performance in the House of Representatives in Abuja.

According to her, “I want to thank NANS leadership for coming out to validate this God blessed mandate. My team and I are just starting. The agenda for a better Oluyole Federal Constituency is still on track. We will commit more into education, in Oluyole Federal Constituency.”

She promised not to take the endorsement for granted, adding that in her little way, she will support education and give pupils conducive environment to learn.
